PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

Hello! It's been several months since I've been on, but I need help.

I just Link Traded on Pokemon Ultra Moon, and I got a shiny Arceus, which I've been looking for for a long time. It had the right OT, moves, and number, but didn't have that special ribbon. Is it hacked?

I don’t think that ribbion is removable. Personally I like to get all my Arceus from a legit source (Hall of origin).

If it doesn’t have the wishing ribbon then it’s hacked.

None of my Arceus have any ribbions and they aren’t hacked. I swear! I catch all my Arceus first hand.
Shiny Arceus can only be legitimately obtained with a Wishing Ribbon. The only other place you could potentially get one is if you hunt for one at Hall of Origin, but the item required to get there (Azure Flute) was never distributed, so any Hall of Origin Arceus is illegitimate.
@falsebenguy2211 - ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. @KRLW890 - Your comment has the potential to be an answer that's better than mine :P. Unless... That's what you meant to do.
